Congress is likely to finalize its winter session strategy and plenary session dates at the first meeting of its steering committee headed by party chief Mallikarjun Kharge on Dec. 4.
Sources said this would be the first meeting of the Congress Steering Committee formed in place of the Working Committee, the party’s top decision-making body, after Kharge took charge as the new leader last month.
The all-important meeting would hold discussions on the party’s future strategy and would also discuss preparations for the “Bharat Jodo Yatra” entering the core Hindi states, the sources said.
Several organizational issues will also be discussed at the meeting, she added.
All members of the CWC were part of the Steering Committee shortly after Kharge took charge as Congress President.
Kharge’s election as president of Congress will be ratified at the party’s plenary session, likely to take place in March next year, with dates for that to be finalized at the meeting.
The winter session of parliament begins on December 7 and ends on December 29.
Kharge was the first non-Gandhi to be elected President of Congress after a 24-year hiatus after beating Shashi Tharoor in a head-to-head contest for the top party post.
More than 9,000 Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) delegates were expected to attend the party’s plenary session.
